Bought for use with flight simulator - it's simple to use and sets up very easily out of the box.

5.0 out of 5 stars cheap and does the job, 7 Aug. 2013

Why pay inflated prices at PC World etc, fast free delivery too - what's not to like!? Does what it says on the tin!

1.0 out of 5 stars Didn't work, had to return it, 7 Aug. 2013

I may have been unlucky to be fair but I had to return it as it didn't work. I got a USB 3 Icy Box instead which does the job just fine. Sorry, Sumvision.

5.0 out of 5 stars Easy to use, long life battery and easy to read in all lighting conditions, 7 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The title says it all really. Books are easy to download and it can be used abroad at no extra cost. There are some negatives - turning the page produces an audible click which can be annoying to others in a quiet environment. The screen flashes on refresh - this is an unavoidable design feature apparently - to be fair it's a minor niggle which you get used to very quickly. The keyboard search function is very fiddly especially if you need to enter a number but it's not designed to be a tablet - it's job is to allow you to read books which it does brilliantly. There is also the capability to access the internet but this is just painful to use - it used to be possible to use it abroad for free on 3G which considering the outrageous roaming costs of UK service providers was a fantastic feature but apparently this has now been withdrawn. I haven't tested that function recently so your mileage may vary.

The drawbacks I mentioned are tiny compared to the abilities of this wonderful, light, simple little reader. Later models may be even slimmer and lighter but mine is still going strong after several years. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars UK price rip-off, 9 Sept. 2010
I was really looking forward to buying this but how can it cost £176 in the UK when it's only $135 in the US? I expect a reasonable mark-up because of shipping etc but this is just outrageous!

[edit] I bought this direct from Rhino Records for half the price - it's a wonderful collection, nicely produced on heavy super-quiet vinyl. An absolute must for Grateful Dead fans (but sadly not from Amazon!!)

5.0 out of 5 stars Does what it says on the tin!, 17 July 2010
Works exactly as it says, out of the box.

Incidentally, only four outputs are available to be used (the fifth socket is the input).

5.0 out of 5 stars Very nice case, 11 Jan. 2007
Well laid out with plenty of accessories including lots of screws and clips for the optical drives making them easy to remove and install. Easy to open and close with captive thumb bolts on the main side-panel. It runs quietly due to sound-deadening patches on the side panels, the speed-controllable 120cm fan and the rubber grommets used to support the hard disc drives (there's also a system to support the HDDs using rubber bands but they look a bit finnicky so I didn't bother). There is no case speaker for POST indication but that's no loss really.
